I'm usually a little high.

dont get me wrong, I've had all-day sell off meetings to the customer but there are a ton of demos and lots of different topics.
 
2017-09-29 03:25:39 PM  
Sounds right.  Under a deadline it goes up to 6 or 7 hours a day. Between projects it drops to 15 minutes a day. My boss rocks. He gets it.

Those hours are 8 am to 11 am.  Anything after lunch is a farking write-off.

Was it on a meeting on how meetings are lasting too long; to be followed next week with a meeting about how there are too many meetings?

I first saw Office Space when I was just out of college and hadn't found a job yet. I didn't really get it.

Now I get it, but it's just depressing.

Were there power points?

If so, I'm sorry.
 
2017-09-29 03:29:42 PM  
I took yesterday off as a Mental Health Day. I'm now realizing that having Friday between that and the actual weekend is not conducive to productivity.

So, I'm statistically average today.
 
2017-09-29 03:31:12 PM  
I have 9 hours of billing  in those 3 hours.  So I've covered my salary and then some, so I'm set.
 
2017-09-29 03:31:21 PM  
I just took a 90 minute nap in my car. I consider that productive.

It was broken up a little. 10 mins here, 30 min lunch there...but it was a slog...

Funny you say that, folks from around the office got sent out to the bar by their supervisor. Mine just left with a "happy weekend!"

No, no she doesn't like me.
 
2017-09-29 03:38:03 PM  
Sounds about right. Depends on the day though, I can usually tell by my fark posting history. And yeah, 8-11am are the only productive hours.
 
2017-09-29 03:38:05 PM  
 Since wages have been stagnant for a generation, they pretty much only pay us for three. So that's what they get out of us.

Dont fret. Most r getting it every day. And the unearned income stock owners r laughing all the way to the bank.

So, what you're saying is that the U.S. Government has a strong economic incentive to fund creation of an efficient "Search/Add gif" feature for Fark's interface?

Yep wages have been in the shiatter since the 80s.
And profits r doing great. The unearned income stock owner drools with joy.

Every year my salary doesn't rise above inflation, my productivity goes down twice as fast.
Pretty soon, I'm going to stay home and send them an invoice,

I remember the days when I worked for a Twp government.  Someone would come to me and say, "I need this right away."  So within 2 hours or so, I would deliver what they asked for.  And they would say, "'Right away' means like, 2 weeks.  Slow down."

I had to work at roughly 25% capacity on a daily basis.  Any more than that and it pissed people off.  Oddly enough, that was right about the time that I created my Fark account and started producing mad PhotoShop entries!

Part of why our government is so farked. It would kill me to work in government because my career path has always been gogogogogogogonownownownow.Seconds are the difference between making budget and farking it hard.
That said, new gig now is more of a "we are all done by 12.30 but we are just gonna sit here until 5 and pick up some scraps to keep up the facade."

Annoying really.

Funnily enough, I had the same experience with Dilbert. It was funny. Still funny. Not funny any more.
I can probably graph it against my time in organizations, especially the bigger they are.

I like the team concept.
Everyone shows up, but only one person really has the 'ball' and is working.  I'm ready when you need me coach!
Until then, it's fark and amazon for me.

GO TEAM

Does trying to figure out how productive you are count as being productive?
